Giffin Gets Tired

By Harriet Staff

Lawrence Giffin

We all do, sometimes. It’s just that he has a better way of writing poems about it, than the rest of us. Lawrence Giffin on the making of his poem, “We Laid It Down. We Got Tired.” at Poetry Society of America

On “We Laid It Down. We Got Tired.”

“We Laid It Down. We Got Tired.” was my attempt to be Rodeferian. Written long hand in a Xanax-and-alcohol stupor on a plane that seemed to be slowly crashing toward Memphis.
